“Welcomed as family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We visited Shel and Deb, for the ump-teenth time, on the weekend of August 4, 2012. It has become one of our family's vacation traditions! Either on a long weekend away, or on a half-way break from the long car ride to our SC beach destination, we have come to anticipate a stop at Oak Hill on Love Lane as a very happy part of our family trips. We cannot thank you enough for your flexibility in accommodating our discriminating ("picky") palates on this last trip! We think the Baked Oatmeal with Fruit that Deb made for the girls was the envy of the whole breakfast party, and we intend to put in an order for all of us on our next trip! As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing "rock on the porch" while watching the sunset against the distinctive background that is only available in Waynesville. Everything was immaculate, welcoming, lush and pristine, as we have come to take for granted. You have spoiled us for any other place! Thank you so much, and love from all of us:

Rick, Cathleen and the girls, Greater Cincinnati/N. Ky Area

Our stay at Oak Hill was beyond expectation. We arrived and were greeted by Shell who gave us a tour of their beautiful home. Our arrival was perfectly timed as we were able to peek into the other guest rooms. Each room was tastefully decorated and absolutely beautiful. The pictures of the rooms you see on their website are exactly what you get.

It's the little things that add up to a exceptional experience.

1) Shell helped us with our luggage from the car to our room. Both on arrival and departure..... Outstanding!!!!
2) We asked if we could have some ice in our room and within a few minutes ice was delivered in a crystal ice bucket on a silver tray......Classy!!!!
3) I had chosen the Bess Ray Howell room which has a stunning bathroom with the original clawfoot tub.
I could not have been more pleased. I took a lovely soak before heading out for a walk into town and dinner. When we arrived back after dinner our bed had been turned down and fresh towels had replaced the ones I had used......Attentive!!!!!
4) Breakfast was wonderful and as others have written, after breakfast Deb sent us on our way with homemade muffins,,,Thoughtful!!!!! ,

Shell and Deb have achieved a perfect balance of being solicitous and respect of privacy. A Class Act.

Thank you Shell and Deb

Oak Hill is a lovely historic home in one of our favorite places in the mountains...Waynesville!
We spent the weekend in the Clyde Ray Sr. suite with a beautiful and comfortable king bed and with a two-person Jacuzzi/shower. Our suite was marvelous with spa robes, luxurious towels and sheets, flat screen TV, hair dryer, daily maid and evening turn-down service. The soaps and lotions provided were from Mountain Farm in nearby Burnsville, NC. There is a Butler's pantry located in the main dining room where coffee, hot tea, soft drinks and bottled water are available. There is also a basket of fresh baked goods and snacks always available. The home was beautifully decorated, well-maintained and very quiet in the evenings and no problems sleeping at all. The breath-taking wrap-around porch with it's wicker furniture will invite you to sit a spell and relax as we did! The meals served in the main dining room were absolutely delicious and the conversation amongst the visiting guests was lively and enjoyable! We enjoyed a weekend visit very much because it gave you a chance to experience all the service and amenities of a fine hotel in the quiet and comfort of a bed and breakfast.
Our thanks go out to Deb and Shell Isenberg, Innkeepers for a very memorable anniversary!

It's rare to achieve perfection and that's what the Oak Hill Inn is!! Shell and Deb genuinely like people. It reflects in their attitude and approach to their guests. They do all/everything to ensure one's full enjoyment of the B & B experience. Breakfasts are multi-course and gourment. Furnishings and grounds most attactive and impeccable.

Our time with Deb and Shell at Oak Hill was above and beyond our expectations of a bed and breakfast specializing in quality service. Deb and Shell are rare jems and did everything possible to fine tune our stay with them. The essence of service! The inn is breathtaking, cozy and grand at the same time. Exquisite view of mountains from front porch. Every room is a winner and truly designed for a restful stay down to the tiny details only a close friend would think of. The breakfasts each morning were absolutely delicious, creative and satisfying. The "third course" a fun and thoughtful touch. Waynesville and the outlying towns are quiant and packed with opportunities; you won't find better guides than Deb and Shell, from restaurants to shops to nature. We will definitely return time and time again!! Can't say enough about this couple and their establishment. We consider them friends for life. J & R June 2012

Room Tip: Every room is just as it seems on the web. We had a grand tour and would have been pleased with any...

We stayed three nights at Oak Hill on Love Lane in May during my son's wedding. Others will no doubt attest to the extraordinary beauty and comfort of Oak Hill, and to the incredible breakfasts prepared by Deb. They are all that and more - you should see for yourself
What will make Oak Hill on Love Lane unforgettable for us, is the wonderful way we were treated. From long before our arrival until after our trip home, Shel and Deb were extraordinarily attentive, helpful, and friendly (not in that unctuous, cloying way - but REAL friendliness and REAL helpfulness throughout .) Because of the wedding, we had some extraordinary requests, including taking receipt of a container-sized load of centerpieces shipped in for the rehearsal dinner. They handled each one with friendly efficiency.

The level of service at Oak Hill is definitely what you would expect from the finest resorts, but it is more personal, relaxed, and one-to-one.

fI Shel and Deb ever tire of Oak Hill, their next career should be teaching other B&B's how to serve their visitors. They are really THAT good.

Our stay at Oak Hill could not have been better! The Inn was lovely as could be - such beautiful and comfortable rooms, with every appointment you can imagine. The food was extraordinary! Lovely fresh=baked goods for snacks, and an impeccable and beautifully served breakfast every morning with exceptional coffee and tea, fresh fruit, fabulous entrees..... It was head and shoulders beyond what you would get at a hotel. After an incredible night's sleep in the extremely comfortable bed, I rose early (as I do) and helped myself to the coffee and baked goods in the dining room, then seated myself on the beautiful front porch in a comfortable rocker, watching the growing sun light up the mountains in view, listening to the birds, enjoying the beautiful scenery and the lovely day with my coffee, until it was breakfast time. Innkeepers Deb and Shel were thoughtful and attentive and extremely hospitable.... I would go back there in a minute. My family occupied three of their rooms, and all of us were totally overwhelmed by the loveliness of the experience.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong - they are all comfortable and beautiful! It's all up to whether you wan...
